Whisky Galore picture

Continuity mistake: Mrs Waggett brings in a tray with cups of tea on it while her husband is on the phone, reporting the sinking of a ship that contained hundreds of bottles of whisky. Mrs Waggett puts the tray on the left side of the screen, then, taking two cups with her, moves to the right of screen and that's where she stays when her husband finishes talking on the phone and, amazingly, the tray that was on the left side is now in her hands, without her moving to the left side to collect it.
